The Allan Slaight Awards recognize outstanding achievement in the pursuit of the impossible. The Slaight Family Foundation established the awards in 2015 and has pledged to give $50,000 a year, over five years, to celebrate exceptional work in five distinct categories. Each recipient receives not only a cash prize, but also a specially engraved iPad to commemorate the achievement.
Magicana has the honour of administering the distribution of these prestigious awards and now, in our fourth year, we have changed the format for sharing the news. This year we will be announcing each recipient online, releasing the name of one winner a day starting on June 25, until all four individuals and one organization are lauded for their contributions to the advancement of magic as a performing art.
Be sure to stay tuned to find out which exciting performers are the 2018 Allan Slaight Award winners!
See you back here on Monday...
